I would highly recommend the GTX 460 over the HD5830. It is a better card and if you are concerned about length it is much shorter as well.

Dont forget the OC'ing, temps, and power consumption! The GTX 460 is even a little quieter. Until the 5830 is about $180 or below, the GTX 460 eats it alive. Heres a comparison:

Gotta love the new anandtech ssd and gpu bench :D

This sale ends in a few hours. But it was a pretty good one , if someone WANTED the 5830.
The MSI twin FRZR model, for 180.00 with a 20.00 dollar rebate and free shipping.
*It had a 25 dollar off coupon code.

IMO, it blows away past deals for some of 4890's that lingered around.
